Sony Lens with 4x Optical Zoom and 26mm equivalent wide angle    
The Sony 4x optical zoom lens brings distant subjects closer for great outdoors, sports, and travel photos. Thanks to 26mm equivalent wide angle of this lens you can also get great group shots in tight spots.
Sweep Panorama
Sweep Panorama mode
Reach beyond the traditional wide angle lens, and capture more breathtaking shots with Sweep Panorama Mode. Simply press the shutter button and sweep the camera in the desired direction and the camera continuously shoots at a high speed, then seamlessly stitches the images together with automatic position adjustment to create one stunning panoramic image. Available in wide and ultra-wide options, the camera can take panoramic shots of up to 231 degrees. Now capturing wide landscapes is as easy as press and sweep.
SteadyShot Inside
SteadyShot image stabilization    
SteadyShot image stabilization compensates for camera shake and helps prevent blur through use of digital processing technologies.
Intelligent Auto
Intelligent Auto Mode
Unlike traditional auto mode, Intelligent Auto (iAuto) mode thinks for you, recognizing scenes, lighting conditions, faces, and adjusts settings resulting clear images, faces with natural skin tone and less blur. Take advantage of all the technology without leaving Auto mode. Kids on the playground, landscape shots, a beautiful flower or an indoor birthday party; all result in clear images without leaving auto mode.
Face Detection
Face Detection technology
Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts focus, exposure, and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends.
Smile Shutter
Smile Shutter technology
Smile Shutter technology captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply press the Smile Shutter button and the camera does the rest. You can also select adult and child priority and indicate the degree of Smile Detection Sensitivity. Intelligent Scene Recognition can now be used together with Smile Shutter mode when the Intelligent Auto mode is on. This means that beautiful smiles can be captured with settings optimized for the particular scene, even in difficult conditions such as twilight and backlighting.
480p AVI VGA Movie Mode9    
In 480p AVI movie mode the camera shoots 640 x 480 movies at 30 fps, which is the format when working with a PC. Users will create movies with full use of optical zoom in files small enough to transfer to compatible PC or Mac. Once transferred to your computer you can effortlessly upload your media to popular photo and video-sharing websites such as Photobucket and YouTube. (Compatible computer with internet capability required)
Natural Flash    
Conventional point-and-shoot camera flash shots just don't capture colors the way the eye sees them.  Natural Flash mode takes a reference shot without flash and then uses that reference to correct the color, for far more lifelike images.
Self-Portrait Timer    
Self-Portrait Timer helps take the guesswork out of self portraits by utilizing Face Detection technology to recognize when your face enters the frame. Once the camera detects your face, it triggers a 2-second timer, and then snaps a picture.
Anti-blink Function
It’s frustrating to capture the perfect shot, only to review it later and discover subjects blinked during the photo. The Anti-blink function works to help counter blinking and squinting. When the camera is set to Soft Snap, the Anti-blink function captures two images, recording only the photo with less squinting. If a blink is detected in other shooting modes, a warning will be displayed after you take the shot.
Dynamic Range Optimizer Standard and Plus
Dynamic Range Optimizer (DRO) Standard and Plus uses a sophisticated algorithm to help recover shadows and highlights. The result is more natural images with clearer details that more closely match what your naked eye sees. DRO is particularly effective when shooting backlit portraits or any scene with a dramatic contrast between background and foreground lighting. DRO Plus allows for even greater optimization by analyzing each region of an image and performing additional image processing.
Intelligent Scene Recognition Mode
Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) Mode    
Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) Mode automatically detects eight different types of scenes and, within just 1/30th of a second, selects the appropriate camera settings: Backlight, Backlight Portrait, Twilight, Twilight Portrait, Twilight using a tripod, Portrait, Landscape and macro. iSCN has two modes: Auto and Advanced. In Auto Mode, the camera takes a single shot using the optimal settings. In Advanced Mode, the camera takes a photo with the optimal settings and, if in difficult lighting (low light or back light) immediately takes a second photo with another optimized setting so you can choose which to keep.
High Sensitivity Mode
High Sensitivity Mode (ISO 3200)
High ISO allows for faster shutter speed, so you can take photos indoors or in low light without the need for a flash. In addition to High Sensitivity Mode (ISO), you can select up to seven ISO settings (Auto, 125, 200, 400, 800, 1600, 3200) when shooting in Program Auto Mode to adjust sensitivity to your shooting conditions.
Easy Shooting Mode
With Easy Shooting Mode, even beginners can take great photos. In Easy Shooting Mode, easy-to-understand basic instructions are displayed on the LCD screen and the camera switches to all automatic settings, removing several function choices and allowing you to focus on just your subject. Since this mode works together with Intelligent Scene Recognition, the camera selects the optimum setting for each scene. In addition the easy mode simplifies preview mode.
In-Camera Retouching Tools
Retouch and enhance your photos on the go with in-camera Trimming, Red-Eye Correction, and Unsharp Masking functions.
PHOTOMUSIC4
PHOTOMUSIC4 combines images with music (4 tracks, 5 minutes per track) to produce fun and entertaining slide shows with standard visual effects (Simple, Nostalgic, Active, and Stylish). Select from pre-loaded tracks on the camera or transfer your own from your compatible computer (sold separately).

This is a very short and simple review. The camera ROCKS! Super easy to use, and navigate. It has many, and even more functions than I will need, but It doesn't overwhelm you! Turn on the camera and your ready to shoot. I love that the camera is a genius. No seriously, this camera detects your surroundings, SMART EH?. If its too dark it will adjust to twilight mode, or maybe there's a view of mountains and fields, the cam will instantly switch to landscape mode. It feels awesome to no longer need to turn any knobs so that the scene focus can change. Aside from this, what really-really made me want this camera was how the panorama shot sounded. Reading the feature before purchase really interested me. After I received the cam and tried it, I was so amazed at the intense wide capture my cam could make. Sure, if you sweep your hand to fast or shaky, you may just get a weird boxy image. However, take your time sweeping your hand and relax, and the image is beautiful enough to make you own home wall art. Lastly, I took video and the quality looked great on cam, I haven't uploaded video yet so I have no further details as to how good of quality video really is, but the pictures all come out stunning. Pfft, funny part is, I even have it on a lower pixel setting to capture a size of around 4x6... Everyone, no regrets... buy this truly cheap camera and forget about going to Walmart for a deal... Clearly the deal of quality and price is right here with this Sony. How I see it, I should scream to ya... GET IT NOW! :D

I needed a new everyday camera. I have 2 young kids and I needed something that I could throw in my purse and use at baseball games and school functions. This camera takes clear colorful pictures, has a great battery life and is easy to use for pics or video. Downloads to my laptop took seconds. For the $100 price tag you just can't beat it.

The camera arrived as expected, and it does what it suppose to do! I did quite a bit of research and review before purchasing this camera! I already have a digital SLR, so I only need one for capturing everyday events like in school, at work, or visiting folks, day to day photography can only be made convenient with portable digital camera such as this one, imaging carry a SLR all day long :) ANyway, so it is however like a toy though, made with cheap plastics, appear super light, thus gives off a "fragile" vibe. Function wise, it is pretty decent, I pick this one especially for its build in "isteady" function, image quality is pretty good too, have an auto scene detection function that select the best image mode for you! Most impressive feature however though is the smile detection function, automatically takes a picture when subject smiles! pretty neat!
over all, I am happy with this purchase at this point, now the question would be how long will it last? I will update this review once something come up!

***Quick Note: This camera does not come with an SD card***

When I bought this camera I was looking for a cheaper alternative to my DSLR camera that I could take with me to events where my big camera wasn't allowed or when I just didn't feel like taking the DSLR with me... This camera fits the bill perfectly.

The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W510 is very small and the large screen takes up most of the real estate on the back. It's good to look for a physical zoom in a digital camera, which this one has and it works very well.

I'm extremely impressed with the flash on this camera, maybe I've been using cellphone cameras for too long but I haven't seen a flash that's as bright and works as well as this one does on a Point and Shoot in a long while. Aside from just taking pictures, the camera can take video(with audio) and the really cool thing that's take panorama pictures in one shot. You simply hold down the button and rotate the camera, it does the rest... Very cool.

I use a 4gb sandisk SD card and it seem to have plenty space (especially if you drop the quality down from 12MP). As I mentioned in the note, there was no SD card included with the camera so be sure to pick one up here on Amazon when you buy the camera to save yourself from in-store overpricing.

This camera is definitely recommended, its a great price, compact size, good quality image, and comes with a rechargeable battery(and charger). What more could you want from a Point and Shoot?

Hope this review helped!

I may have just gotten a bad model but every single picture I have taken with this camera is WAY too overexposed. The flash completely washes out every person in the picture no matter how far away we stand and even the background. I've never experienced this before on a point and shoot camera. I don't know why it's doing this and I wanted to see if anyone else had this problem and/or if anyone knows how to fix this issue? I really wish I didn't have this problem- seemed like such a great deal and otherwise has great reviews! Unfortunately at this time, I plan on returning this item and buying anther point and shoot digital camera. I wish I could add a picture I've taken for an example of what I am describing. Thank for any help!
